United by our faith in Jesus Christ as the only possible way of salvation, we enjoy working together, praying together, and worshiping together. We want to grow to become more like our Savior. We encourage each other in the faith. If you have not been a part of the church family, come and find out what our family is like.

We've been praying ...

... for our government officials.

It shouldn't surprise anyone at all that we are doing this. When we pray for those in authority over us we are simply obeying Scripture!

1Timothy 2:1–3

1Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.

But what are we praying for? We are not praying for our leaders to make the decisions that we want them to make. We are praying that we can live godly lives under them!

Sometimes we may disagree with decisions that our leadership makes, but that does not stop us from praying for them. Sometimes we may approve of decisions that they make, but that does not mean that we stop praying for them either!

But maybe we can take it a step further. Maybe we can tell the leaders that we are praying for them. Maybe we can even write letters that give encouragement to them and thank them for their service.

Oh, and by the way, we need to vote next month!
